Night Stand

$15 Investment.  I liked it because it was mostly "real" wood. 


I painted it an "oops" yellow, which I diluted with some white,
 & I added "tin tile" wallpaper to the back

And painted the inside of the drawer a pretty Para Paints blue,
And rubbed with steel wool and sandpaper,
Then distressed with walnut stain.

As a "NEWBY" blogger, I am diggin' the glass knobs I see everywhere.  I just had to "git me some"!
I am very pleased to say, they actually were right in front of my nose, and available at Home Depot! 
$5 for the knob.


"I am a linky party girl!" - I linked up to a couple of parties last week, but then when blogger was down for a few days, I lost this post!

  1. I just love the special touches that you added! The blue drawer and the wallpaper! It looks great! Thanks so much for linking to Thrifty Thursday! :)

  2. That came out great. I know all about the blogger issues last week. I lost a post I had scheduled so I had to rewrite it. Then the next day is ended up showing up. Thanks for sharing at my Swing into Spring party.

  3. Love the nightstand - the blue drawer is very unexpected but looks awesome! Wonderful transformation!!
